The Billboard Hollywood party is a key part of the new year's eve
celebrations in the USA, providing the west coast element to a new
year party that starts in Times Square in the heart of New York City
and travels across several different time zones to arrive in
California 3 hours later, shown live on TV and via the online stream
across all of the country.
The Hollywood party is part of the ABC new year programming that runs in parallel with the iconic Dick Clark's New Year Rockin' Eve (NYRE) party that culminates in the famous new York ball drop that is watched around the world. Watching the ball drop is often a feature of new year's eve events on the west coast, something to kill the time while they wait for their own new year to arrive several hours later.
The Billboard Hollywood Party has been part of the NYRE party since new year's eve 2006/07 and consists of pre-recorded sections by big name artists from a studio in Los Angeles that are then broadcast throughout the evening as part of the main ABC new year's eve show.
The Billboard Hollywood party has new host this year with musical
superstar Ciara taking over the reins from previous host Fergie of
Black Eyed Peas fame.
The event is known for the quality of the performers is attracts, listed below is the lineup for new year's eve 2018/18, which is now taking shape nicely:
